.CO is pleased to be a sponsor of the first-ever ResellerClub Hosting Summit taking place on November 1-2 in Mumbai. The summit is a dedicated conference for the growing web hosting community in the country. Our involvement and attendance of the conference is a result of our desire to support the rapidly developing digital space in India.
Since the launch of .CO in 2010, we have focused on the young, tech-savvy, startup and entrepreneurial community and are aware of India’s young demographic of Internet savvy people. Therefore, India proves to be a natural fit for our global expansion as it is a country with approximately 80 million Internet users – which is expected to increase to 376 million by 2015. It is a booming space for technology and business is being conducted online at an increasing rate. E-commerce in particular is thriving in India and the proof is in the double-digit growths on a month-to-month basis. With more than 1.4 million registered domains in just over 2 years, the growth of .CO closely aligns with that of India.
.CO is watching the Internet flourish in India and it is apparent as we come across a number of Indian businesses building their online presence on a .CO domain. We are increasingly seeing startups like Littleeye.co, a team of mobile app developers building software for consumers join our community by building their business on .CO. E-commerce storefronts, communities and agencies such as 3spin.co, an agency that provides world-class digital solutions to improve business processes using smart technology – are all choosing to get online with a .CO web address.
“Our decision to sponsor ResellerClub’s Hosting Summit comes with much excitement, as we will have the opportunity to touch close to 2,000 individuals in India’s community of resellers, web hosts, web designers and web developers,” said Crystal Peterson, Director of Channel Marketing of .CO Internet. “Supporting the thriving businesses and entrepreneurs building online in this region is a priority and we look forward to seeing all the incredible developments that India’s future holds.”
